The inside is light, bright and airy, with lots of wood, communal tables and the fabulous smell of fresh baked bread.
We found a table in the window and one thing I immediately liked was a jug of fresh water and glasses on the table, so no wasteful plastic bottles. Another big plus for me as a vegan, was Bio D hand wash in the toilet, I always take my own hand wash with me when out and about, no need to use it this time.
I ordered chargrilled aubergine, pepper, salad and radish on sourdough, with a pot of peppermint tea. The sandwich was huge, probably because it is difficult to thinly slice sourdough, with loads of filling, the aubergine was perfect. The juices from the vegetables had soaked into the bread and I could have eaten it, till it came out my ears it was that scrumptious.
I was full afterwards, otherwise I would have grabbed a slice of the fabulous looking chocolate olive oil cake, clearly labelled on the counter.
I really liked Pollen Bakery and it is fantastic that places like it are offering vegan options, certainly one to visit for a relaxing coffee and something to eat.
